A Till of Two Day.
Krom the l-oitlaii'l Telegram.
Here is a tale of two days. Both were
early spring days. One was iu the Upper
Mississppi valley, the other in Oregon.
Over Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, the
Dakotas and Wisconsin swept the wild
blizzard, ita icy breath chilling and kill
ing all things Hint were exposed to its
fury for any length ot time. Railroads
were blocked with the drifting snow,
business was suspended in the cities and
towns, the schools were closed, persons
who were so venturesome as to go into
the streots were caught up by the whirl
ing gust and dashed against, the tele
phone poles. That was one day. Now
look upon another picture. H was a
balmy spring day in Oregon. Tbe birds
sang, the trees budded, the tuneful hum
ming of bees filled the air with melody,
the violets raised their sweet faces to be
kissed by the genial sun-rays, the rose
buds peeped out from their green cover
ing, and all nature wore a smile of peace,
plenty and contentment. And yet the
two days were one and the same, to-wit,
the 9th day of March, 1892. Who dare
say that Oregon hasn't the greatest cli
mate on earth ?
Au ApoRtle Spealis.
Henry Frank, "the Apostle of Human
Progress," lectured recently in New
York on Jay Gould and Dr. C. Park
hurst. He said: "A certain distin
guished minister assumed to criticise a
certain distinguished financier. He
used extremely sarcastic terms, and was
not particular in the way he reviewed
the financial potentate. Tbe minister
was Parkburst and the financier Jay
Gould. Both these gentlemen are Pres
byterians, Dr. Parkburst hy profession
and Jay Gould by purchase, f lie min
ister criticised the financier for giving
$10,000 to the Presbyterian church. Jay
Gould exists simply because society
allows him to exist. The conditions
make hiin an idol. Money is now the
god of humanity. Hr. Parkburst,
clothed in fine linen and silken gowns,
preaching from a pulpit plastered with
$10 bills, and living in luxury, is not the
man to throw stones at members of his
Transmission orF.lei-trlc Tower.
At the late Buffalo meeting of Hie
National Electric Light Association Mr.
Carl Hering'B paper on "Transmission
Power" attracted special attention. He
concluded that ' it appears probable that
the problem of long-distance transmis
sion will be solved by the use of high-tension
alternating currents originally gen
erated at a low voltage, then formed into
high voltage, then sent oyer tbe line,
and finally transformed into low tension.
This will furthermore be done by some
system which will enable motors to bo
used on the circuit. The system used at
Frankford (Germany) was such a one,
and was a perfect success in every way.
It seemB, then, that the problem has not
only been solved, but practically dem
onstrated on a large scale."

I was the only newspaper niiin iu Cus

went out of t bo Terror business forever.
He had heard that Gnzly Joe, Wildcat
Bill, Rattlesnake Hank, Awful Sam and
the rest of the Terrors, had either been
keeled over or quit the trade, and
he came iu to make terms. I was
talking with the sheriff when the last
living Terror, who answered to the name
of Deadshct Steve, walked up. He was
armed with two revolvers in his licit and
a bulldog pistol in bis pants pocket
Down along lea spinal column was a
bowie knife and in his vest pocket the
left ear of the last man who had refused
to drink poisou with him.
"Well?" he queried in a voice which
had made a hundred men chill in other
'"'It's played!" quietly replied the
"All out of the business?"
"Every one. The man across the road
will give you $15 for your outfit. Come
iu out of iho wet."
"It's tough," said the Terror, as his
thoughts went back to other days ; "but
this yere civilization walks over every
thing. I cave."
I met him later on, when be had bad
his hair cut and been washed up and
exchanged his buckskin, and 1 asked
him how he felt.
"Queer, but I'll probably get used to
it," he replied. "When a man's been
a-liviu' a holy terror for twelve yearB
lie's sort o' rooted to it. Got to change,
though. The Terror business is played."
Two days later, as I was ready to de
part, I encountered hlin as he was wield
ing an axe on a woodpile in the front of
a saloon. When again asked how he felt
he looked really cheerful as he replied:
"I'm a-gittin' thar, Btranger, and you
kin put me down as cured. When a
feller calls me a liar both hands go back
fur my guns liefore I ken stop 'em, hut
that's a habit, you know, and I'll soon
get over it."
'And you have gone to work?"
"Had to do it or go up for a vug. Civ
ilization's a rollin' right in yere and
everybody's got to knuckle or take to the
hills. I've knuckled. Sand's all gone."
I went to the poslofiice to take the
stage, and fifteen minutes later the ve
hide and its load passed the wood pile.
DeadBhot Steve was r.o longer there.
Looking out across the plain we saw him
speeding as if for his lite, and thirty feet
behind him, and hardly holding bisown,
was a chunky Chinaman armed Willi

The old Kentucky feuds are dying out,
and those who pa'rticipated in ihem are
finding their way ro the prison or i lie
grave, or to the oblivion of peaceful life.
The Yellow Creekers of lioil comity
scattered like host before the sua when
the builders of Middleshoroiigh and the
new Pineville appeared. The leaders of
the old factions sold their farms at a good
figure, and became capitalists or moved ;
away. Craig lolhvers name nas almost
ceased to bighten timid children in
Rowan county, and Craig's old antagon
ist, Boone Logan, has moved away from
the town in which he led the battle
which exterminated the Tolliver gang.
The French-Evesnlu clans are awaiting;
trial at Winchester for their crimes, in1
Perry coiinly. The leading Eversole is I
dead, French has moved away from I
Perry county to Winchester, and the
gangs have fallen apart. The liar'an
county war was over when Wils Jen
nings and Wils Howard fell into the
hands of the law. The followers of the
Turners and those of the Howards have
dropped into peai elul ways or lied the
count y. The llatlields ami McCoys
have been banged or imprisoned. And
the snuffing out of Jerry Little's life the
other day by a saw log, while engaged in
building a residence for himself, was the
first reminder the pub'ic has bad in a
long time of the now almost forgotten
Strong-Little feud that once gave so
much trouble in Bieatlult county.
Coat Baron anil Farmer.
James Hartley in New York Worlil.
As it i proposed to apply the single
tax system to farm as well as coal lands,
let me add that the change would proba
bly we welcomed by the fanner, for the
reason that under it he, too, would he
assessed only on the value of his land,
as Indicated by the highest amount his
farm would rent for annually if stripped
of all its improvements, including build
ings, fences, etc.
As the ordinary farm with improve
ments will rent very .low today, tho
average fanner will see that bis farm
assessment anil tax would be greatly re
duced under thiH modern tax system,
while, besides enjoying freedom from
taxation on personal property and im
provements, as well as from all tarili
taxes on his supplies, his coal, which
now costs him five to ten dollars a ton,
would, on account of the effect of the
single tux on mining lands, he reduced
to probably two to four dollars.
Tariff reform promises to reduce the
cost of the farmer's manufactured sup
plies. Tbe single tax promises to go
further in the same direction by giving
the farmer his iron, coal, and nil at much
lower prices than he ever paid.
